Twenty-four Washington state parks will close for the winter, but more than 60 will remain open seven days a week for camping and day-use activities. Most parks offer off-season rates for camping. During the winter, many campsites are open on a first-come, first-served basis, but reservations are taken year-round for camping at Cape Disappointment, Deception Pass, Dosewallips, Grayland Beach, Ike Kinswa, Kitsap Memorial, Ocean City and Pacific Beach.
The winter schedule can be found online at parks.wa.gov-/158/Winter-Schedule. Some parks are open only on weekends and holidays. And campers should be aware that some state parks may shut off the water system, even if the park is open.
